We Didn’t Start the Fire: Or Did We?


Notre Dame de Paris

It came as a bit of a shock for most everyone with news of a fire at Our Lady of Paris on Monday evening. Now it seems that the first alarm at 6:20 pm was considered false because no one could see any smoke or fire. It wasn’t until 24 minutes later, when a second alarm went off that smoke could be seen coming from the roof. Oops.

Now the authorities are wondering if those 24 minutes contributed to the total destruction of the roof. And the employees of the company renovating the building were supposedly not on site at the time. So who did it?

The Chart


Astrologers look at moments of time differently than historians. I have been doing this work since 1992, analyzing historical events from an astrological perspective. It has provided me with insights into hidden matters.

According to the chart, seen above, every planet was held in place by different aspects with other planets. And especially of note is the Cosmic Cross between Jupiter and the Midheaven on the vertical and Mercury/Venus with the Ascendant on the horizontal.

Only one planet is suspect: Uranus. In this chart, Uranus is inconjunct with the Ascendant, which means that the moment of that fire alarm triggered Uranus’ ability to provide a ‘bolt out of the blue’, in a manner of speaking.

While not endorsing the literal idea that lightning struck the roof or the spire, figuratively this may indicate that someone or something, with the Power to illuminate our minds, caused this fire.

Changes in your life tend to take place suddenly. You are impatient with slow changes that you cannot see happening before your very eyes, so you do everything in your power to ensure that necessary changes come quickly. On the other hand, you may resist change altogether until the pressures are so great that they have to come suddenly and with great force. Obviously you need to be more patient about change and more willing to let nature take its own course.

You are also interested in the hidden aspects of life, wanting to know the answer to all mysteries and riddles and seeking any understanding you can get from them. When you do this, you have a unique ability to think about new ideas with an open mind and, even more important, to apply them to your everyday life.

When anyone tries to press their ideas and values upon you, you resist strongly. You have to be free to set your own values, and those values must allow you to be free. Often this comes out as a lack of concern with material possessions. You do not want to be bothered with owning a lot of things, especially if it involves you in other people’s concerns. However, when you do work with others and share tools or ideas, you use your common resources in ways that are unexpected and quite inventive.

Whatever you do, be careful not to move suddenly or behave rashly, for this could lead to accidents. If you can learn to act carefully and deliberately, this possibility will be minimized.



The Roman Catholic Church is in a very bad state with all of its scandals and infighting. Notre Dame de Paris is a symbol of the Church in Western Europe. As an institution, the Church needs a complete overhaul, not just a ‘whitewash’ paint job. Someone or something is saying that there isn’t a lot of time left to get the work done, so get a move on.

We may not have sparked the fire, but our inaction on matters of supreme importance have fanned the flames. And all we can do is watch as it burns. Watch, and learn.
